What Separates A Hand-Woven Rug From A Machine-Made Rug?
- Even, consistent patterns featured on both the front and back of a rug. Machine-woven rugs often feature a pattern-break, while handmade artisan rugs are carefully woven. When determining if a rug is handwoven, authentic handmade rugs feature deeper levels of dye and more noticable patterns on the underside. Machine-woven rugs are often much more consistent in regard to both weave pattern and color when reversed.
- Thick, firmly-rooted fringe knots of multiple sizes. The fringe on machine-made rugs is usually glued on or individually woven, but authentic Oriental rugs feature durable and consistent weaving throughout. Take a look at the fringe of a rug to see whether it is consistently applied and tightly knotted. If you can see that it is loose or part of a separate "end-piece", you can easily tell that your Oriental rug is not a genuine, handwoven area rug, but rather a mass-produced, machine-made rug.
- What the rug is made of. Authentic, handwoven rugs are made out of long-wearing, yet high-quality materials such as organic cotton and silk, while machine-made rugs are generally made using polyester and similar materials. While these fibers may cost less and found easier, they will not last anywhere near as long as a hand-crafted rug made with premium materials. Think of buying a rug as if you would a pair of shoes: would you rather spend more money today and have a product that is well-made and will last for years, or save some money in the short-term but know you will eventually have to replace that rug?
